Tennessee family trip
This place was good. The location was convenient to Pigeon Forge attractions. The cabin is somewhat secluded from other properties, which is a major plus in my book! The only complaints are that the hot tub was not full, which we were really looking forward to enjoying, and we found that the dishes/utensils were put away dirty, from their last use.
The Hot tub was able to be filled, but there was not any chlorine. (This can create a cess pool for germs, and from past experience, we didn't want to chance everyone getting sick.)
Other than that, it was pretty awesome and we would probably stay there again.
Patty, thank you for your review. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay overall! We did want to clarify that this homeowner provides bromine for the hot tub, which is actually a more effective disinfectant than chlorine, so there should be no concerns around using this amenity. Thank you for your feedback and we hope to host you again in the future! Best, the Evolve Team
A great option in the Pigeon Forge area
The property is an amazing cabin and has lots of little features that are nice. To start with it has 3 livable levels all of which have a full size bathroom. The top level has an excellent size master suite along with the hot tub which can be accessed without having to go through the master bedroom-the master can be closed off so you don't disturb guests in there. Plenty of towels provided by the cabin make using it easy too. Also it is enclosed enough and high enough off the ground that privacy is not a concern-not that you are not right next to any other cabin as there are only a couple of cabins down the road away from this one. The main floor has the kitchen and main living area as well as a nice wrap around deck. The kitchen is a good size for the cabin and fairly well stocked. The living area is comfortable with a fireplace and a nice tv which is equipped with satellite tv with lots of channels especially sports channels which made it easy to keep up with football throughout the weekend. Probably the best channel selection of any place we have ever rented-also they have 4 receivers throughout the house-one upstairs, one on the main level, and two in the lower level-awesome! The lower level was our personal favorite-there is a pool table, arcade game, indoor sauna, movie room with 4 reclining movie chairs, and a deck with a swing and a table and chairs to eat on. Outside the cabin there is even a fire pit and charcoal grill. The location is about a 10 minute drive from the main strip-some might think that's too far away from the action but if you have never been to the area trust me you want to be able to get away from the crowds-traffic on that road looks and feels like rush hour in any major city. Sit in that for awhile and you need a vacation from your vacation which is why the peaceful location of this place works-also you can reach Food City without ever having to get on the main parkway. On another positive note, the owners use the Nest thermostat to control two HVAC units. They worked extremely well and the owners don't have them locked to a specific temperature range so you can actually get comfortable (unlike a beach rental last year). Check in was easy with plenty of communication from Evolve as well as even a personal email from the owner. When we go back to the area this will be the first place we check on for availability in the future. Great job guys!!!!!!!
review for cabin
The cabin was very nice, clean and accurate. However, The Hot tub leaked so bad that you could not sit on the rocking chairs underneath. or use the porch swing. The thermostat was something else. You set it on 70 degrees and it would be 85 degrees when you come back in the evening.I never received my directions from Evolve or anyone for that matter on how to get to the cabin. I had to call 3 different times. I finally received street directions and was told to google how to get there.I rent cabins all the time,and I have always received my directions. I was not pleased with this at all. The cabin itself is very nice, It is just the few things that I did not care for at all.When it is 108 heat index you expect to come into a cool cabin. you should not have to wait a couple of hours for it to cool down.
Joyce, we're so glad you found the cabin was clean and accurately advertised! However, we're sorry to hear there were a couple of unsatisfactory issues during your stay. The homeowners were unaware of the issue with the hot tub, but they have since had it repaired. The thermostat is a Nest learning thermostat that shuts down once it doesn't detect any movement, which is why when you left the cabin for an extended period, it didn't save your desired temperature. The owner will be leaving detailed instructions on how to operate the Nest thermostat, and driving directions to their "Welcome to the Cabin" email sent to guests before check-in. We appreciate your feedback so we can continue to improve upon and ensure excellent guest experiences! Best, the Evolve Team
